Assassin priests, mad kings, and the goddess of death collide in the first book of the Dreamblood Duology by NYT bestselling and three time Hugo-Award winning author N. K. Jemisin. The city burned beneath the Dreaming Moon. In the ancient city-state of Gujaareh, peace is the only law. Upon its rooftops and amongst the shadows of its cobbled streets wait the Gatherers -- the keepers of this peace. Priests of the dream-goddess, their duty is to harvest the magic of the sleeping mind and use it to heal, soothe . . . and kill those judged corrupt. But when a conspiracy blooms within Gujaareh's great temple, Ehiru -- the most famous of the city's Gatherers -- must question everything he knows. Someone, or something, is murdering dreamers in the goddess' name, stalking its prey both in Gujaareh's alleys and the realm of dreams. Ehiru must now protect the woman he was sent to kill -- or watch the city be devoured by war and forbidden magic.Learn More

Subtle and moving performance
- It is hard to review this book because I have to compare it to the first book by NK Jemisin that I read, the Hugo award winning The Fifth Season. You could not get a more perfect marriage of talents than that one. But this book is very beautiful and I am looking forward to reading the second in the series. The pace is smooth and relaxing until the end when it becomes extremely tense and exciting and I do love how the author is able to build upon her story to create such moments, while returning to the overall theme of love and peace. Zimmerman's performance is in line with this smooth and peaceful story and sometimes I think she could have done a little bit more. But as far as straight narration goes, she does an excellent job at telling the story and creating distinctions between voices that make the experience engaging. When the action really ramps up, she rises to the occasion.
